1999 to 2017 – It was a good run, guys!
Times have changed, and social media now does much of what Cleveland Swings did. It’s time to close up shop. If you’re looking for information on teachers and dances, here is a non-exhaustive list:
Regular Dances (as of 1/1/17)
- First Friday Swing Dance, usually at the Bainbridge Town Hall, 17826 Chillicothe Road (Rte. 306), Bainbridge. Lesson 8-9 and dance 9-11:30. Live music. Contact Will Craig at (216) 316-0068 for details.

One of the benefits of closing down Cleveland Swings is that I don’t have to maintain lists like this any more. However, if you have something to add, contact me at troy (at-mark) clevelandswings (dot) org.
If you have the interest and aptitude to take over Cleveland Swings and take it to the next level, feel free to contact me!
Until then, farewell, feel free to ask me for a dance, and remember to never lead aerials on a social dancefloor! :)
